Considering other reviews, this must be a VERY fresh bottle...
Pours a very very deep red-brown, almost opaque.
Very hot/boozy, but not unexpectedly so considering the strength of the beer. Up front hops - somewhat citrusy, but more earthy. Caramel malt and molasses flavor in the background, but very subdued. Lingering bitter hop aftertaste.
I'd take a Bigfoot over this, but I still like it. I am biased, as I prefer the megahopped ones and avoid most other barleywines, yet even this one tastes a bit too 'green.' Still enjoyable though.
